After a system reinstall: Windows 7 I had to reinstalled Mozilla and set it as my home page yet when opening Mozilla I get a hosting site with this address. http://www.http.com//www.google.com

I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times and still get this weird hosting website every time I open Mozilla. I've cleared cache. I've made sure the address does not appear as my home page.

Please advise, Thank you.

Hi, I am developing an internal website. Today I downloaded Firefox 21 (FF21) and installed it. When I loaded up the internal website the default page (default.cshtml) load properly but the first of 4 cascading dropdown boxes does not populate.

This website is hosted on a Win 2008 R2 server running IIS7.5 and the lates asp and .net frameworks. I am able to use the website without any problems in IE9.

On my development machine a local version of the same website opens and populates correctly in FF21, the local website is localhost served by webmatrix on IIS express (my machine is win 7 Entreprise 64 bit).

What is happening and how can I sort this out. Thanks.

I have tried resetting my mozilla support password a few dozen times now (ok... over one dozen, at the very least). To date I have had no success. Unlike some prior issues, I receive the email, I am (supposedly) able to change the password, i receive the response that I can login now, but the login never works. Had I tried once or twice or three times, I might believe I made errors in typing passwords, but after more than a dozen attempts that no longer seems plausible.

In order to post this issue I have had to create a new account which required creating a new email account... not ideal for me, but I understand the rationale. However, I am still stuck with the inability to use my existing profile to ask for clarification regarding prior questions. I had hoped this was a time lag issue, but I have waited 24 hours for some of the resets to take effect, with no luck.

Is there any way to get my prior account password reset (really reset... like, so I can login...)?

Hi,

I use Firefox sync with multiple devices and I wanted to reduce the sync interval so that my stuff gets sync'ed more frequently.

Note I sync "Add-Ons", "Bookmarks" and "Preferences" between devices.

If I go into the about:config preferences and change the "services.sync.syncInterval" value from the default 3600000 to 60000 I see the value change.

HOWEVER if I then perform a "Sync Now" from the menu I immediately see the "services.sync.syncInterval" value reset to 3600000.

I was expecting that the 60000 would instead be sync'ed across to all my devices and would remain.

Can someone please advise how I might resolve this?

Appreciate any help, thanks for reading!

I asked before and got no answer so I am trying again. This occurs with any version i have downloaded above ver. 14.1. Every time i start up Firefox before the browser window opens there is a popup box that says it is checking the compatibility of my addons. I am not a fan of tabbed browsing so i use multiple windows. Any time I open Firefox the compatibility checker runs. I can not figure out how to prevent this from running. I am able to keep it off my system as long as I do not upgrade above version 14.1. The result is I have had to set Updates to never check to avoidbeing bombarded multiple times a day by Mozilla with the message that updates/upgrades for Firefox are available.

I have tried everything I can think of to download a higher version and not to have this feature, including doing custom installs and unchecking the maint. service box. But no matter what I have tried the popup addon checker is still there. Since I do not allow any programs or sites to update automatically, except for security software, I am not willing to update beyond 14.1 until I can prevent the addon checker from running without permission.

Is there any way to disable this function in versions above 14.1?

I abandoned Firefox 3 years ago because it had gone from the fastest and best browser on the market to the slowest and worst. I recently decided to give it another shot. I was quite please that it is MUCH improved in speed. However, after having to reset my default search engine from Bing to Google EVERY TIME I START FIREFOX UP. I'm out. Sorry, kids. You had a good product at one point. It is not anymore. Best of luck to ya.

When I use the mouse to hover over the naviation bar, I can see it, but once I select a drop down like bookmarks, I have to continuously hold the mouse button down until I move it to the bookmark I want, then I release the mouse button to select the bookmark. I used to be able to just click once to open the bookmark drop down, then click once to choose the bookmark I wanted to open. How do I get this function back?

Currently, opening a new tab goes to a blank search page with an annoying advertisement, and I want it to open a new tab in google.com.

I've tried for over 2 hrs to fix this, following instructions I found. Nothing has worked.

I downloaded an add-on, but it did not work.

I then used about:config and tried changing "newtab" and "keyword" but those changes did not work.

I now see that the config list has dozens and dozens of files beginning CT 2504091, and I am wondering if those should be there.

I now fear i am making things worse if I keep trying, so I am writing to you.

Alos, I am reluctant to use the "reset" option because it says "will TRY to keep bookmarks," and my wife will NOT be happy if all her banking and other bookmarks disappear upon reset.

thanks in advance for your help.

Don't know what else to say except that I've tried every suggestion to stop the multiple tiled icons in the task bar as I could find. When I say tiled I mean that the second and third (etc.) icons are slightly offset to the right of the top one. If there are several there and I click on the top one every page I visited but did not close before going on to another website will appear in a small window just above the taskbar.
